Casa Garcilaso

Museum of regional and colonial history
This house, one of the first colonial constructions in Cusco, was the former home of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. Its architecture is mixed: the foundations and facade are of Inca style but were built during the colonial period while the Spanish occupied Peru. There is a good collection of Inca textiles, ceramics, and gold and silverware. The second floor holds an exhibition of Cusqueñan art. Another room houses temporary exhibitions and doubles as an auditorium for cultural events. Admission is included in the "Tourist Ticket": PEN35.

This village is built on the historic remains of the ancient "Hacienda" of Tupac Inca Yupanqui. The hillside surrounding Chinchero was transformed into a group of terraces lined by typical Incan stone walls. Large rooms were built above the terraces and were used for administrative and religious functions. Today, you will find colonial bell towers that have been built over the Incan ruins. The colorful Sunday market in Chinchero is where the communities of the region exchange their agricultural products and handicrafts.
